Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Low noise
* Lots of fans, keeps it cool
* Adjustable fan speed switches
* Useful placement of front panel USB and audio ports

Runs very cool, very quiet. I've been buying antec cases for a while now, and this one is pretty good.

Cons: * The hard drive cages that have the fan in them are kind of a pain to deal with
* If you plan on having a lot of cords or hard drives, prepare for a battle, it gets kind of cramped!

As a side note, the front fans got kind of noisy when I filled the cages with all three of my drives. I'm not sure if this is because there's so much weight now or if it's something else. It's a sort of low level buzzing and I have sensitive ears.

These cons weren't really enough of a problem to dock an egg.

Other Thoughts: I think my top fan was supposed to have blue lights in them... and it has the holes to actually shine them out.... but there's no blue. Not a big deal. The fan works and that's all that matters to me!

ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Lots of customization in the bios
* Bluetooth and wifi on-board (I only plan on using the bluetooth)
* Built-in overclocking switches
* Worked with all my components right away
* Great Linux support (Fedora 20+)

Cons: For whatever reason, using the TPU II switch causes Windows setup to throw a "machine_check_exception". The only way around it was to set it to 1. I sadly had to dock an egg for that because it was a huge waste of time for me to discover THAT was the reason why I couldn't get windows installed.

I was able to install Linux perfectly fine though.

Other Thoughts: Newegg needs to either stop being selective on their RMA requests or revise their replacement policy. I had a board come in that had bent pins and the customer service department said I was trying to return it (I was trying to get a replacement) and said I damaged it. This led to HUGE amount of frustration when they said they'd give me store credit to buy a new board... which I wouldn't have got till Tuesday that next week. Basically, I got third class service, and apparently the only way to get things done the right way is to complain on their facebook page.

That's actually very depressing and I expect better from Newegg. The multiple times my family has RMA'd motherboards for replacements, they got their replacements no questions asked. Loyal customers (for me, since 2006) get treated a much more negative way than new-ish customers.

If you happen to get a bad board, RMA it with Asus. Dealing with newegg will be the biggest mistake you'll ever make. Trust me on that.

Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * Lots of spacee
* Pretty fast for a platter drive

Cons: I bought two of these drives and I'm not sure if's the motherboard (Z87) or the drives. But both drives act REALLY wonky. To the point that when a hard drive operation is to occur, everything goes to a complete stand still. And when it finally decides to go, I hear clicking like it's powering on, though it's been powered on and moving this whole time.

Other Thoughts: Two seagates in a row that acted like this to me in the same order. That's rare for me, but things happen. I may have to see about the warranty.
